Adrian Ramsay, Deputy Leader of the Green Party, visited Leicester
today to support the Green Party campaign for the Castle Ward Council
by-elecion on Thursday.
Mr. Ramsay, who is Leader of a group of 13 Green Councillors in Norwich, said:
"I am delighted to be supporting the campaign of Dave Dixey and the Leicester Greens for this important by-election.
"The Green Councillors have made a real impact since they were elected in May 2007. They have brought a fresh voice to the Council and pushed through policies to improve road safety and insulate more people's homes.
"A Labour victory on Thursday would just increase their majority on the Council. A Green victory would ensure that Greens can continue to put forward their fresh ideas.
"It seems the Labour administration in Leicester is being slow to implement the 20mph speed limits for residential streets that Green Councillors persuaded the Council to back. If Dave Dixey is elected the Green Party will be able to challenge Labour to make road safety a priority for the whole city."
